Georgia Health Information Network (GaHIN) offers Georgia ConnectedCare to providers at no charge to facilitate the secure sharing of patient information.
Electronic health records (EHRs) can provide tremendous value to physicians and healthcare organizations, especially when they contain comprehensive patient information that extends beyond the walls of the practice or hospital.
